The university system is being turned on its head.
Ron DeSantis is throwing out the Leftists who have controlled it for years.
And now he is creating the most conservative university in the country.
For years, conservative parents with college-aged children have had a dilemma on their hands when picking a school.
They want their child to get a real education, not to get indoctrinated by insane Leftists who are filled with anger, resentment, and grievances.
Unfortunately, most universities in the U.S. are filled to the brim with people like that.
Any Republican governor has the power to do something about that when it comes to their state-funded universities.
But most Republican governors have backed down from that fight, not wanting to rock the boat or upset the woke education establishment.
Ron DeSantis has done the opposite. He has thrown himself headfirst into the fight against woke indoctrination in schools, and he is taking action to get rid of it.
According to a report from Axios, “Gov. Ron DeSantis appointed six conservatives to the board of trustees of New College of Florida last week, in an effort to transform the liberal arts school into a conservative institution.”
“His appointments included Christopher Rufo, an activist who helped turn critical race theory into a conservative rallying cry, and Matthew Spalding, a dean at conservative Hillsdale College in southern Michigan.”
Rufo has become famous over the last few years for his efforts to expose Critical Race Theory.
He has documented college courses, K-12 classes, and corporate trainings that have pushed insane theories about white inferiority and have even segregated people by race, just like what used to be done in the days of Jim Crow.
New College historically has been the type of place that would teach crazy theories like that. But now it is on the verge of becoming the exact opposite.
Axios continues, “New College, which has more than 700 students and 90 full-time faculty, is regarded as the most progressive college in the state.”
But the DeSantis administration is putting an end to that.
“Florida Education Commissioner Manny Diaz said he wants New College to be ‘more along the lines of a Hillsdale of the south,’ per the Sarasota Herald-Tribune,” Axios continues.
Hillsdale is one of the most famous conservative universities in the entire country, along with Liberty University in Virginia.
Up until now, parents who have wanted to send their children to a place where they won’t be indoctrinated by angry Leftists have essentially been limited to those two choices.
But Ron DeSantis is turning the Florida university system into a place where students can have free speech and be taught real information, not be indoctrinated by ideologues.
This will have ripple effects well beyond the university system. It will impact the next generation of journalists and leaders that our country puts forward.
Stopping Leftist indoctrination in education is one of the most important things the conservative movement can do going forward, and Ron DeSantis has been the singular leader of that effort.
